Gas Price Report For May 21, 2018

Gas price trend for the week of May 21, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Gas prices continued their upward climb during the past week, according to the latest weekly survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A.’s weekly fuel price survey shows the average price of gas jumped another nickel per gallon during the week to $2.92. That figure represents more than 30-cents’ worth of price hikes in the past two months, as crude oil prices surge amid global tensions and the approach of the summer driving season.

Prices went up in all regions, although the range of increases varied widely, from just over two cents in the Lower Atlantic states, to over seven cents per gallon across the New England states, according to the weekly survey.

Truckers were hit with a four-cent per gallon increase in average diesel prices this week. The E.I.A. reports the average price for a gallon of diesel is now $3.28.

This week’s average fuel prices for all regions are shown below, as gathered from www.eia.gov.

Gas Price Report For May 14, 2018

Gas price trend for week of May 14, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – After a single week of relief from never-ending gas price increases, the cost of fuels shot up nationwide during the past week, according to the latest gas price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The average cost of one gallon of gas in the U.S. is now just over $2.87.

That price represents a seven cent increase over last week, but there is a catch. That increase is depended on a new statistical methodology the E.I.A. announced it would begin testing this week. The new methodology includes a refinement in how the agency calculates average prices by zip-code, what geographic areas qualify as cities, and an update to the sample of stations surveyed, the agency reported on its website. The updated sampling methodology does not apply to diesel pricing surveys.

By the new statistical model, weekly gas prices increased well over seven cents, on a nationwide basis, last week. Some regions, particularly the Midwest and Rocky Mountain states, were hit with ten-cent and eight-cent price hikes, respectively.

Truckers were also greeted this week with a substantial hike in diesel prices. The E.I.A. reports the average cost of diesel went up nearly seven cents per gallon, bringing the average price to just shy of $3.24.

This week’s average fuel prices for all regions are shown below, as gathered from www.eia.gov.

Note: There are two regular gas price tables this week in order to detail the price trends with the new a E.I.A. statistical calculus, versus the old methodology. The E.I.A. announced it implemented the new methodologies with the May 14, 2018 gas price survey. That new survey method is shown first, followed by a table using the old method.

The statistical models used for calculating diesel price averages has not been changed.

Gas Price Report For April 30, 2018

Gas price trend for week of April 30, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Gas prices continued lurching higher during the past week, according to the latest gas price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Retail fuel prices jumped another nickel per gallon during the week, settling near $2.85 for regular unleaded.

Most regions’ fuel prices remain under the $3.00 per gallon level, but many are watching average prices ebb closer to that mark, including the Central Atlantic, where average gas prices are now $2.91. For drivers on the West Coast, particularly California, prices at the $3.00 level are only a memory, having been above that threshold for weeks. Average prices in California this week are $3.43 per gallon, while prices are about $3.13 per gallon for the broader West Coast.

Truckers were also socked with another diesel price increase this week, though not as dramatic as regular gas. The E.I.A. price survey shows the average cost of diesel went up nearly two-and-a-half cents per gallon, bringing the average cost to near $3.16.

Gas prices increased in four of the five surveys released during April, and each of those increases was near or above five cents per gallon. The only declining week showed a meek dip in prices, when the April 9 survey showed a price drop of less than a penny per gallon.

In all, April ended with prices twenty cents higher than the end of March, according to the E.I.A. reports.

This week’s average fuel prices for all regions are shown below, as gathered from www.eia.gov.

Gas Price Report For April 23, 2018

Gas price report for April 23, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Prices at the gas pump continue surging, according to the latest weekly price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The E.I.A. report shows the average cost of the nation’s gas jumped another nickel per gallon this week to settle just under $2.80.

Prices pushed significantly higher across the nearly all regions, with costs across the Central Atlantic and New England states jumping nearly seven cents per gallon. For drivers in the Central Atlantic, prices were closing in on $2.90, the only region where prices are so high without going over the crucial $3.00-per-gallon bright line. On the West Coast, that line was crossed earlier this month, and prices this week jumped another four cents to hit nearly $3.09. For drivers in California, prices remain the highest in the nation, averaging $3.57 statewide.

Truckers were hit with another dramatic price increase this week, as well, according to the E.I.A. survey. The nation’s average cost of diesel jumped about three cents per gallon to $3.13 per gallon, a figure that is about 54¢ per gallon higher than last year at this time, according to the E.I.A. That translates into about a 21-percent increase in fuel costs for truckers, on average, year over year.

Gas price trend for week of April 16, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Drivers are once again feeling a strong pinch at the gas pump, as this week’s gas price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration details.

Gas Price Report For April 9, 2018

Gas Price trend for week of April 9, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – After weeks of unrelenting price increases, the cost of gas leveled off for most drivers, according to this week’s fuel price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The weekly E.I.A. report shows the average cost of a gallon of regular unleaded dropped fractionally, about six-tenths of a penny, but enough of a decline to push this week’s price average to $2.69.

Prices were down by as much as two cents across the Midwest and in the Lower Atlantic states. And while most of the East Coast enjoyed about a penny drop in prices, a sharp rise in fuel costs across the Rockies and the broad West Coast region held the U.S. average back from a bigger weekly decline, according to the E.I.A. report.

For truckers, the average cost of diesel ticked up about a tenth of a penny, but the national average price remained at $3.04 per gallon.

Fuel prices for all regions are shown below, as gathered from www.eia.gov.

Gas Price Report For April 2, 2018

Gas price trend for week of April 2, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Gas prices increased over five cents during the past week, according to the latest gas price report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The weekly E.I.A. price survey shows the average cost of a gallon of regular unleaded is now $2.70.

No region was spared the nickel price increase this week, in practical terms, at least. The highest price increases were seen across the Rocky Mountains and the Lower Atlantic states, where prices went up by seven cents and six cents, respectively. All other regions were hit with the nickel price increase, although, technically, the Gulf and Central Atlantic states’ price increases were shy of a full five cents, according to the weekly report, which measures prices to the tenth of a penny.

The news was only slightly better for truckers, which is to say, nearly as bad. Prices jumped over three cents per gallon, on average, for diesel, to hit over $3.04, according to the E.I.A.

Gas Price Report For March 26, 2018

Gas price trend for week of March 26, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – Driving keeps getting more expensive, as the data reflect in the latest gas price survey, from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The weekly price report shows the cost of an average gallon of regular unleaded surged five cents on the week, pushing to about $2.65. Prices shot higher in all regions.

The lowest price increases were seen across the Midwest, according to the report, where drivers experienced a two cent increase in gas prices. For the unlucky drivers along the Gulf Coast, the price of gas surged nearly eight cents per gallon, according to the E.I.A., jumping from $2.30 last week to $2.38 this week. Prices along the Gulf remain the cheapest in the United States, according to the report.

The news was little better for truckers. Prices jumped about four cents per gallon, on average, for diesel, to settle over the $3.00 mark for the first time in weeks. The national average price of diesel is now $3.01, according to the E.I.A.

Gas Price Report For March 19, 2018

Gas price trend for week of March 19, 2018

Fort Lauderdale, FL – The cost of the nation’s fuel supply spiked during the past week, driven by intense price hikes across three key regions, according to this week’s fuel price survey from the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded shot up by nearly four cents, settling at just under $2.60.

Prices shot significantly higher across the Lower Atlantic, the Midwest and the West Coast, according to the E.I.A. The survey report shows each region endured average price increases between five and six cents per gallon. Most other regions had price hikes of between two and four cents per gallon. Only the Central Atlantic states were spared a price increase, according to the survey report.

The news was much better for truckers, although prices were mostly flat in most regions. In fact, the U.S. average cost for diesel remained flat on the week, declining just about four-tenths of a penny per gallon. That was enough to shift the national average from $2.98 to $2.97, but the move is more academic than practical for most drivers. Still, haulers operating across the Central Atlantic enjoyed a fair dip in prices this week, according to the E.I.A.
